A WITTY, kindly and very wise. continental gentleman, with a hint of Voltaire in him, holds an informal conversation with the reader. The result is a vivid enthusiasm for straight thinking.
Ernest Dimnet is a Frenchman—but he writes in English with a style so clear and humorous that it tickles the palate of the mind.
The shadow of the textbook does not darken its pages, but in them the educator and the parent will find a small gold-mine of useful lessons.
M. DIMNET sets forth definite helps to thought which in his long career as scholar, writer and preacher, he has found useful. H clearly showing us how to arrange the data in our minds, he gives us a real recipe for becoming as happy as—and perhaps much wiser than—kings. The final chapter contains a brilliant discussion of the nature of creative thought. Though we may never set pen to paper we may all of us be more or less creative in our mental processes.
The book is intended for average minds equally remote from genius which knows no mental obstacles and from stupidity to which everything is an obstacle.
When the last page of this fascinating book is turned, the wings of ambition have been attached to the reader's mind.
